Management Training Formats

Recommended Posts

Everyone knows the importance of continued training in this

very competitive economy. Management training is typically a

2-5 day event, complete with travel. The information is

taught very quickly. Its like trying to drink out of a fire

hose. You also are leaving your business shorthanded at the

same time. After said trip the tendencies to fall back into

your same old habits. I'm curious how interested folks might

be in a self study formatted system. A system that you could

help you decide on a goal, format a plan and achieve desired

results. The kind of system that lets you follow your vision

while still giving the needed format & steps to get you

to your goal.

 

1. Are you aware of any self-study management training

material such as a textbook, videotape, cassette tape or PC

based program? If so what is the name/title?

 

2. If self-study management training materials were made

available, would you be interested in obtaining it? Why or

why not?

 

3. If you were in the market to obtain a self-study

management training program, which of the following formats

would you prefer?

 

- Textbook

 

- Video Tape

 

- Combination Book and Video Tape

 

- Audio CD

 

- Combination Book and Audio CD

 

- PC Based Multimedia (Interactive CD)

 

- Website based text book & blog

 

4. What content would you want to be included in such a

program? (i.e. write-up and dispatch processes, pricing

policies, how to determine profit margin, how to properly

equip the shop, setting up the shop, productivity analysis,

environmental issues - waste material management)

    • Free Simple Shop Management Software

      Hey Everyone, I'm Ricardo from Complete Auto Reports.  You may have heard about the shop management software that we made at a shop in Linden NJ.  We've been really busy over the last year trying to refine the process at a shop through the software.  We have come up with something we think that people can and will benefit from.  We want to start with smaller auto repair facilities who are looking for something to transition out of paper and pen, as well as word documents and/or excel spreadsheets.   We've taken our software and made a free package that allows the following from any device with a updated and functional browser: Take appointments from your customers Digital Vehicle Inspections - Included in every service request and sent to each customer if performed Workflow - Pending, Under Process, Awaiting Approval, Approval Completed, Work In Progress, Completed Ratings - Customers can communicate ratings directly to you Messages - You can communicate with customers through the platform Customer App - All service history available, can schedule appointments with the app, transfer vehicle records to new owners Sales Reports 100% mobile - Works on everything from your 5inch iPhone to your desktop.  You can presently upload all of your customer information: name, address, phone numbers, email. Paid for versions offer parts ordering through PartsTech.com and Employeement modules that track employee time on jobs. Are there members here who are interested in trying the free platform to see if it's a fit for their business? Anyone interested in the paid for versions, can also get 60 days of free use and discounted rates available from our SEMA promotions.
